Leeks And Celery
Well, I've started! Today I planted leeks and celery. It feels good to be planting again.
I'm doing a leek trial this year....8 different types of leeks! I always plan to simplify things and pick 1 winner. That way I could save money on my seed order. Also, using up one packet guarantees that I will always have fresh seeds each year.....having 8 varieties guarantees that I will have lots of unused seeds next year when planting time comes around. But then....I just can't help myself! Each variety sounds so GREAT in the catalog, and I get lured into trying them all. I just have to find out for myself which one is the best!
It's a small start, but in no time at all these shelves will be full!
